We went to a break up party last night for scouts and every child got a gift from Santa – we expected a bag of lollies or such so were very impressed with the actual gifts.

animal finger puppetsAll the younger siblings were given an animal finger puppet.

It was only small and probably cost no more than a bag of lollies (less if you count the time it would take for someone to make said bags of lollies!) but I think it’s a much nicer gift. It will last and didn’t hype the kids up at the end of an exciting night as sugar would have – and no one had to worry about allergies either.

So if you’re after a token gift, keep animal finger puppets in mind – they work a treat! Especially when Santa hands them out 🙂
